Based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee, FINDING NEVERLAND follows the relationship between playwright J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up – one of the most beloved stories of all time. Directed by Tony® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair) with book by Olivier Award® nominee James Graham, music and lyrics by Gary Barlow (Take That) and Grammy Award® winner Eliot Kennedy, and choreography by Emmy Award® winner Mia Michaels (So You Think You Can Dance, Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium), this new musical, packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, is a timeless story about the power of imagination…and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.
The production features scenic design by Tony Award® winner Scott Pask (Pippin, Book of Mormon), lighting design by Tony Award® winner Kenneth Posner (The Coast of Utopia, Pippin), costume design by Suttirat Larlarb (Of Mice and Men), sound design by Tony Award® nominee Jonathan Deans (Pippin, La Cage aux Folles), hair and make-up design by Richard Mawbey, projection design by Jon Driscoll, music supervision by Fred Lassen, musical direction by Ryan Cantwell and casting by Stewart/Whitley.
